I agree, Scrim. I have no expertise in this area, just the benefit of experience and I think the thing is we have to realise that he is in a great deal of emotional and psychological pain and each of his posts is a cry for help distorted 180 degrees by the pain. In such a case there is nothing you can do to help this person until he admits to himself that he has a problem. Reason, pity, retaliation won't make any difference. All you can do is restrict the oxygen of attention and hope there is a spark of something in his soul which will help him to find his way. I don't think he gets the music but there is a possibility that it could be his saving grace so lets show him that we care about him as a fellow human being and trust to the four winds. I hope I don't ruffle any feathers if I say that if we allow his words to provoke us it means there is something within ourselves we need to look at.
I know some of us won't agree but the beauty of this forum is that it is free... and this is my two cents.:¬)
